>> stephanie: yeah particularly i think in the wake of newtown, to read these kinds of stories, i was just appalled. >> caller: i can't get over it. i wanted to know if anyone else found it ironic that during the benghazi hearings republicans kept trying to say to secretary clinton, that they wanted to find out what they can do to never let this happen again, but when it comes to gun control they say there is nothing we can do. >> stephanie: exactly. everybody is coming to the table on this, except for the gun lobby. >> that's the evil of power. >> stephanie: yeah. and they are used to it for so long. they are used to people just cowering. let's go to carry in wisconsin.

6:30am
>> caller: they are saying one thing and doing the other. it's like -- especially john mccain he is trying to throw everyone under the bus. >> stephanie: if we get the right thing on immigration reform, who cares if they are doing it for political reasons. >> i have to give them credit for moving on this. >> stephanie: but they only do it because -- not because it is the right thing to do, but it is because they have to. >> yeah, john mccain said flat out yesterday, it's because of the election. >> stephanie: it's the angry leprecon puffing away on his pipe. that was him being all anti-illegal immigrant when he was running with whatever -- oh that sheriff baboo.

6:37am
talking 14 15 young, not 9 10 young, shows interest about guns, just like a 14, 15-year-old shows interest about sex, should be educated you know? because otherwise you get in trouble. >> well, i was having sex when i was seven or eight -- >> stephanie: that's right. that doesn't mean your parents encouraged you. well, jim if you are going to start dating -- [ laughter ] >> stephanie: you need to make sure you know what you are doing. am i wrong? because maybe i don't have kids. but i'm thinking if a young person starts showing an interest in guns maybe -- >> maybe soccer. >> cycling. >> stephanie: right. hackky sack. >> or if they are really interested in shooting guns.

6:39am
as long as the guns keep floating around they make the money. is it any wonder why they are so much in favor of everyone including the mentally disabled of getting guns. >> stephanie: yeah, they oppose every single reasonable gun-control measure. when you look at all of the polling, americans agree with us on those measures. and that's why i keep thinking why are they so powerful and fearful? >> the nra represents the gun manufacturing industry. >> stephanie: right. what is that story i just did from the "new york times." it is all of these gun groups that are interested in selling guns. >> people die every day. >> what really upsets me is the hypocrisy of them putting out these violent video games and then wayne lapierre coming out
6:40am
and criticizing video games. >> stephanie: that's right. >> it's not the selling of -- it's not the advertising of guns to, you know teenagers. it's the hypocrisy of the violent video games. >> stephanie: i think they just did that to be [ censor bleep ]. >> i subscribed to a gun magazine as a boy. >> stephanie: what is in boy's life. >> stephanie: it was a boy scout magazine and there were gun ads in there. >> i was more of a mad magazine as a kid. >> i somehow don't picture a

6:44am
are trying to suck up the votes. and that puts it out in the forefront of everybody's mind of what jerks they are and i think it only is going to increase votes for democrats. >> stephanie: yeah no. that's always their -- clay that's exactly what their supposition always is is that latinos or gays or -- are stupid. >> caller: yeah, i lived in santa fe and i want to tell you something, latinos are smart normal people, and these republicans are not. >> stephanie: it's like their convince with the props. look we have one of these. and people are not dumb. >> yeah. >> stephanie: they don't have policies -- >> well, some people are dumb. there are lots of white people that are dumb. >> herp derp.

there were insufficient thumb screws. >> stephanie: yeah. steve in scaneti says steph, i think you are being too optimistic on immigration reform. the republicans will never say the border is secure. >> right. and the other thing that really bothers me about it is this commission of local officials who are going to have to pass on whether the border is secure enough. who is going to decide that joe arpieia? >> yeah. >> am i glad the republicans are seeing the light on this issue? yeah, i guess. am i glad that john mccain is now back to his original position? sure. >> stephanie: listen to the angriest leprecon yesterday. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn serve our food,

7:41am
there are a lot of republicans in the house who can oppose immigration reform and face no electoral consequence at all. >> yeah. >> and that is something that has got to be taken into account. it's possible that baner will be able to keep enough of the children in line that this thing gets passed but even if it sails through the senate which i don't think it will it will get bogged in the house. because there's too many people there with too much committed on the other side of the issue. i think there's a political imperative now that wasn't there a year ago. >> stephanie: every issue strikes me how out of step the house republicans are with the vast majority of americans. we were talking about the father of a newtown victim getting heckeled. just when you think is this

debate going to be different this time, you think i don't know. because the other side is the other side. >> yeah, i don't know why it takes people so long to understand how completely demented the conservative movement has made the republican party. and it has done through success. it hasn't done so through failure. there was a constituency for these positions, and they can't let go of it even to their own advantage. the clearest indication are the fact that the republicans really should be in charge of the senate right now, but they gave away four easy seats. >> stephanie: exactly. and as you and i got to see senator warren -- you are right the senate gives us hope. >> i think most important you have got progressive someone fors who have to be listened to. it's not like elizabeth warren got elected as this happy clappy

8:09am
right? >> that's right. as an eagle scout and somebody with openly gay parents i was not very pleased with the ban on gays. and so we have been working to lead the charge and we have a president called [ inaudible ] and it allows people all over the country to start petitions. and we used that to put pressure on the board members and to empower local councils and regional bodies of scout troops to make this happen. >> stephanie: this is pretty huge isn't it? >> it is. it was only seven months ago when they came down really hard and said we're not going to consider a change to the policy so we launched an effective
8:10am
campaign that really highlights the damage this policy has. that being said stephanie, there is still a lot of work to do. >> stephanie: right. >> if you read closely what this says is while the bsa will have no position at the national level, it will not prevent local members from preventing gays from joining their units. so while we're moving in the right direction, we still have a long ways to go. >> stephanie: they obviously made news recently. they ousted a lesbian mom of her pack in ohio, right? >> yes and there was a lot of energy around that.

[ inaudible ] resort over the summer. and that's when it became clear to us that if we were willing to put the right amount of work into it, we would really be able to make this happen. >> stephanie: zach walls, as a former youtube sensation yourself, this is why, i think in some ways your testimony before the iowa state legislature caused such a sensation is because you put such a human face on it. you talk so lovingly about your two moms and how you are a normal family like everybody else -- >> i don't know if i would say we were normal. that might be stretching it a little bit. but we are absolutely a loving and committed family no doubt about it. >> stephanie: i think that's why we have made so many strides and i think that's why we're moving to quickly on these
8:12am
subjects don't you? >> yes. >> stephanie: i think americans have a basic sense of fairness. >> absolutely. it's why we founded this country, no taxation without representation. it wasn't fair. so here we are today over 200 years later, continuing to perfect the union, and it doesn't just happen through changing public policy, part of it is by changing the kinds of groups that constitute the vast majority of activity in this country, and yesterday the boy scouts joining us continues to help perfect the union. >> stephanie: i remember your testimony so clearly, because you were so compelling. you are this gorgeous guy, and i think that's what resinates with people is you go these people are just like me, and you have moms that you love.
8:13am
>> yeah, stephanie, you are absolutely right, but if it wasn't me, it would have been somebody else. the beautiful thing about standing on the right side of history is this kind of carries us all along, and it's an incredible thing, absolutely. >> stephanie: the other story was they refused to approve an eagle scout application for ryan anderson a california teen who came out as gay. >> that's right. >> stephanie: and again, i think when you -- again, american's basic sense of fairness and kids being excluded like that out just doesn't seem fair. is that not the base of it? >> yeah no doubt about it. we put his mom in touch with change.org. ryan is an incredible kid, and his parents too, karen and eric two incredible human beings.
8:14am
they clearly, you know are there for their son and support him, and it's a beautiful thing to see you know. and so when i think about, you know, the basic sense of fairness, i absolutely think that part of it is having, you know, the understanding that, you know, a scout is a scout and you are what you are, and not -- that that will probably change by your sexual ore rentation or anything like that. >> stephanie: how do your moms feel about the supreme court? >> yeah, we're all holding our breath, no doubt about it. i filed an am cuss brief, friend of the court brief on that case -- on the doma case, and i believe they might use it for the prop 8 case as well. it's really exciting. it's a little crazy to have nine people hold that much power you know? >> stephanie: yeah.

8:19am
but one of the things they were saying is that laws will only effect law-abiding citizens, which is pretty silly, because these laws would make it more difficult to purchase guns and especially these killing machines, but it didn't even make sense in terms of how laws work. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: another thing they were saying is people are asking why we need high-capacity weapons, but why do we need anything? we have the right to buy what we want? >> stephanie: yes, and those arguments just fall apart. you can't buy a -- >> a stinger missile -- >> a cannon. >> caller: right. you have to limit it. and they were saying that they needed -- a lot of them were saying -- as i was sitting with a whole bunch of people in an overflow room and they were saying they need their guns
8:20am
that they need them for personal safety. statistically we know the opposite is true to protect their family. so we can't extend that to say we have to arm school teachers. >> they are talking about arming kids now. >> stephanie: yeah, exactly. and we were saying you can't get away from that statistic. you are 43 times more likely to kill a friend acquaintance, a loved one if you have a gun in the house. nicole seconds me this. a man was looking for his friends house, pulled into the wrong driveway and got shot in the face by the homeowner because he felt threatened. there are so many instances -- you can't tell me there wouldn't be a lot less tragedies. nineteen minutes after the hour.

i can only be a person only through you." that really resonates me and drives my work. the world is becoming an incredibly connected place. mobile phones are really driving that connection. at kiva, we run an internet marketplace. people can lend to other people for the purpose of starting a small business, going to school or a variety of other good causes. you can go to kiva.org and you can see pictures and profiles of people from over sixty countries all across the world. you can lend them as little as $25. if they are successful, they will pay you back. dear rixi, you're a honduran immagrant. you're coming to the us, you have an idea to start, you know, a women's cosmetics store or a clothing store. you're going to need a lot of things, ya know, to pay the rent, permits inventory, advertising, marketing so that adds up quite a bit. you're going to need tens of thousands of dollars to start a small busines.
8:23am
there is ten million-plus people completely left out of the formal finical system. banks don't lend to people like that at all. there is a lot of opportunity to decrease unemployment, provide employment, provide economic opportunity and raise our standard of living by investing in small business. our hearts are an incredibly powerful thing. good technology can help amplify this power and create an incredibly powerful force that can spread to every country in the world.

however, i do think that there is a legitimate issue with regard to at least knowing who is in our country with regard to those who have overstayed visas. i think there is some dialogue that can take place here. >> stephanie: lynn to john mccain yesterday. >> the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens and we realize that there are many issues which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, but this is a preiment issue with those citizens. >> stephanie: does that actually help them or hurt them to say out loud we're losing the hispanic vote. >> at least he's being realistic. and also people would be more likely to believe that immigration can be done this year because he -- he said such a thing.

we do know that it is an incentive for republicans to come to the table on this issue, and then finally we can get something done that can ensure that people will be treated fairly and that families won't be split apart; that the young people and the scientists who are educated here will be able to stay and we won't lose them to other countries. >> stephanie: representative take us through legislatively what happens now. what happened yesterday was basically the senator putting forward a bipartisan proposal. now how do you see this playing snout >> the president will give his speech today. and that will be the starting bill. he will speak broodly about the changes we need to make. but then hearings will take place. i'm on the judiciary committee in which this debate will take place, and the hearings will start on tuesday in our
8:41am
committee. i believe there will be bills that come out on both the senate and house side. and the bills will be passed in the spring and a conference committee will try to reconcile those two bills. >> stephanie: you look at john mccain and you think this is his third flip flop around this issue. first he did back it and then he backed totally off of it, now he's back on the side of comprehensive reform. do you think this will play out differently on the house side this time? >> the house side may attract more of the tea party crowd, but i believe this conference committee process that were put together the senate bill which i believe will be more reasonable, can have a fair bill in the end that can pass both houses. >> stephanie: and what -- you know, it's hard to say -- i mean on all of these issues -- i
8:42am
mean, i look at -- we're also talking about the gun debate at the same time. and the president said if the american people want this, they can get it done. i don't want to give up hope yet that the politics are going to be the same every time. do you? >> i think that the american people are -- are speaking. i was so encouraged by the huge march in washington on gun violence prevention and i believe that there will be a strong voice a voice of unity by all of those who want immigration reform very soon. the american people want to make sure that this is a fair country, and that it's not about what you look like or where you were born that makes you american, it's how you live your
